I already own a Playbar and recently purchased a Play 1. One thing I find invaluable is being able to control the Playbar using the TV remote, even if playing music. It is very intuitive and easy to use. What I've noticed however is that now when grouped with the play 1 the TV remote volume control only manages the Playbar vs. the whole group volume. Is there a way to add an option to have the TV remote control either only the Playbar or the [b]whole group[/b] volume once grouped? Would help to extend the handy and intuitive control the bring the volume up and down across the rooms.
It’s 2022. It would be just an excellent experience to have a widget to add to support toggling volumes without needing to open the app. While I know there’s third party solutions I trust Sonos with both support and privacy. With Apple’s OS fully unified from mac to iPhone, it would be just a cherry on top for the Sonos ecosystem and help my older family easily interact with the speakers.
Hi, I’ve been experiencing a bug on my Sonos One players recently.I’ll select a song that I want to play using the Sonos controller app and then select the repeat song button (tapping the repeat button twice so that the icon with the 2 arrows and the ‘1’ inside the circle appears). The song will play normally during the first playthrough, but after that, the song always skips after the first 19 seconds (this is very consistent). Sometimes an error will display in the Sonos app about an unsupported encoding, sometimes nothing shows up.I’ve used both the iOS app and the macOS app and get the same results. FWIW, the song is this one from Spotify.My workaround is to create a playlist with at least 2 songs and then have that playlist play on repeat, which for whatever reason seems to stop the bug from happening.Any help would be appreciated. If nothing else, I just want to make sure the Sonos team sees this bug report. Thanks!
I am currently creating a home theatre setup in a family room that measures 18’x12’. I do not have the ability to install recessed wall speakers, and I do not wish to hang speakers off the wall. Can I use 4 ceiling Sonance speakers to be my front L+R and rear L+R, along with a sub and Arc for my centre channel? I am planning on hooking up the system to my television via the Arc.
Hi,I am quite keen to buy the new SONOS arc sound bar. But I am not sure if it is suitable to my room. I am afraid it may be an overkill. My room size is 14 feet by 16 feet (224 sq feet or 20 sq mtr). I have a 77 inch Sonly OLED TV and wish to use the arc with it in the room. Cananyone please advice if I can go ahead and get it or if it is not advisable for such a small room size. I need the best possible sound quality and ready to spend the money, I mean budget is not a constraint. Your help will be greatly appretiated. Thank you very much.
I purchased a Sony KD85X91J in July equipped with eARC so I could listen to content from my Apple TV 4K in Dolby Atmos. The problem I have is whenever I play Atmos content (and ONLY Atmos content). Every so often the Arc has a quick popping sound followed by the Arc losing audio until I back out of the Atmos content I was watching. When I back out I can start the content again in Atmos and it will work for a while until the pop and audio cut out happens again. I have a 5.1 setup with the Arc, 2 One SL’s and a Gen 3 sub. The bass and surrounds still play audio after the cut out. Only the Arc is affected. The HDMI cables i am using are both rated to handle Atmos content. Link to the cables being used is below. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07S1CGQ9Z/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Is there a fix for this issue? It’s very frustrating investing into a system that cannot deliver what it advertises and I’m hoping theres something I’m missing that will easily solve th
I purchased a pair of Roam speakers to use with my existing stereo system, connecting through Bluetooth, so that I can listen to CDs/radio/vinyl playing from my receiver in other rooms. I have an external Bluetooth transmitter/receiver plug-in to connect with the Roams which works well, however there is a significant sound lag between the Roam and the existing stereo speakers so I can't have them both on at the same time. I tried a different plug-in Bluetooth transmitter/receiver with different Bluetooth codecs as well but that didn’t work either.Is there any way I can get the wireless Roam speakers and my old wired speakers to work in sync? I have read about needing to hook up old systems with the Port or Amp but I want to be sure that this would actually fix my problem before I invest in a substantially more expensive component. Any help would be much appreciated. Current System:Record Player: Project Primary-ECD Player: Pioneer PD-M403 SRStereo Receiver: Sony STR-DH190Wired Speakers
I am a little shocked that Sonos still hasn’t provided a way to export a playlist yet. I have invested a lot into the speaker system because of the quality however being restricted like this is discerning to say the least. I am not sure what the point is now in creating a Sono playlist ever and I’ll keep to only using Spotify or Apple musics playlist features. Sonos I would highly recommend you invest in this feature moving forward.
I have a tivo edge and trying to setup the remote to control the volume of the Arc. The Tivo remote works just fine with my TV - turns on and off and selects the input without issues. The remote uses IR. To program the remote to control the arc, the Tivo instructions are to select a A/V device from the Tivo remote setup menu and try the different codes to see what works with the Arc. There is not an option to select any Sonos codes, so you apparently must use a code from another brand, My research says thet the Denon codes work with the Arc - but not mine! I have tried all the Denon codes and none of them work. My remote is in IR mode and has new batteries. How do I set up my TIVO remote to control the volume of the arc.
My original Roam died and has been replaced under warranty. Since the problems seemed to be power related, I’m thinking of only using this one on USB-C and keeping the wireless charger in a drawer. Is this paranoid? The original would regularly drain faster than it’d charge on the wireless pad but the new one seems to be behaving and I was wondering what experiences everyone else had. I may even try out the voice assistant again on USB-C with this guy, it killed the battery faster than anything else on the first one.
I have read the thread on no Android integration for Trueplay, but I would hope spending 1500 on a system there would be a better solution than "borrow an iOS device from a friend"! Especially after3+ years!!! First thought, if it is a microphone issue, then standardize your system with 1 mic to calibrate your system with. Yamaha, Marantz, Denon, Pioneer etc ALL provide a setup mic with their systems. Microphones among iOS devices also differ, they are different from year to year and model to model. So that verbage doesn't add up or holdmuch water. Second, before the android bashing begins, I bet the cost of my system if the table was turned and it only worked on android and not iOS devices, there would be a loud outcry of Apple users, especially if told to go "borrow" an android from a friend. Not that this will change anything but I got to express my opinion. I'm the proud owner of a top-of-the-line Sonos system that is"Meh" at best.
I was excited that my sub mini arrived today, but not so much now that I've set it up. We've got an open-plan area where I have a beam for the tv and two 5s for music. I assumed I could pair the sub mini to both - ie, that it'd work with the beam when watching tv and with the 5s for music. But it looks like I have to assign it to one or the other. A bit disappointed! Unless I'm missing something?
Hi All - I just added Sonos to my gym via a Ray sound bar on the TV. My wife does guided workouts using the TV. Particularly on the treadmill, the TV speakers too far away to reliably hear over the treadmill motor. I'd like to use a Play 3 as an additional speaker, essentially just playing whatever the Ray is outputting. I was able to add the Play 3 to the system with no problem, but it sets itself up into a new room ("Gym 2"). I'm figuring I can just put the output of the ray to the Play 3, but is there any way to permanently group these together? (Improved WAF....you know....). Thanks!
Trying at add a pair of Symfonisk bookshelf speakers as surrounds to my Beam. I set them up and confirmed they were working individually. Then I tried adding them as surrounds.I go thru the setup and it fails saying “There is a problem adding your surrounds. Check the network connection and make sure your products are powered on. Try again.” They are powered on and network is working fine (could play music up until starting the setup).Pressing “Try again” instantly gets the same error. If I exit the setup, the Living Room (where the Beam is) now says “Living Room (+?+?)” and I have “Remove Surrounds” in the rooms menu. I tried playing something in 5.1 but no sound is coming from them. The 2 Symfonisks are also now gone from my system and I need to factory reset them to get them to appear in the app again.How do I setup the surrounds properly without error?
After exhaustive troubleshooting, I’ve narrowed the issue down to the 3.5mm Line Out from my Optoma UHZ50 being the culprit. Setup: Optoma UHZ50 Projector sending audio to Sonos Amp via 3.5mm “Audio Out”. The wire is one-sided on the UHZ50 side, then has a red and black end which plug into my Sonos Amp. My Amp powers to Definitive Tech DI-8R Ceiling Speakers. The issue: One of the two speakers is very low, static, and simply sounds bad. I tried troubleshooting everything - new speaker wire, different banana plugs, even swapped the speaker (I have 4 and 2 are in box) and even tried a different Sonos Amp (I have 2, one is still in box). Nothing fixed the issue, so the only thing left to try was replacing the 3.5mm cable, so I went ahead and swapped that (I also have two of those) and the issue persists, but if I flip the Red / Black the opposite speaker has the problem. Basically the “Left” speaker out on the Amp is the problem when I have the “Red input in the red plug and the black i
Hi AllI have a Sony PS-HX500 turntable with built in pre amp. I currently have it running through an old amp and speakers which works well but I would prefer to be able to stream to the Sonos speakers I have in rooms around the house (a mixture of Beam, One, One SL, and Move) so I could listen to it anywhere. I’ve read so many articles but am still confused as to what would work and what would be best. The Port looks to fit the bill, but some reviews don’t seem great as regards sound quality. The Amp looks to fit the bill, and looks to have better reviews, but is obviously quite a bit more expensive. Both seem to offer functionality I don’t think I need. For what I want would either of these be better than the other, or is there a different solution in the Sonos range? I’d be interested to hear views from people who have either, or have found a different solution. TIA
What is the latest version of Sonos 1 Controller for Mac, and what are the minimum system requirements?
My High Sierra Mac Pro crashes every time when it attempts to update from 11.5, could that be because the latest version does not work on High Sierra?Astounding that Sonos does not seem to provide basic info like this on their site.
Before Christmas I had telephone discussions about why having the above S2 and Mac OS combination the former says it finds Sonos on my network but on clicking ‘lets connect’ eventually says Not Connected - Your Sonos Product was not found. I was told a solution is being worked on.Can anyone tell me when this issue is expected to be sorted (by Sonos or Apple)?Given my investment in Sonos and Apple products this is frustrating and I had expected a fix by now.Fortunately, my Sonos system remains usable via my mobile AppHelp!
